Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo Barbaresco Santo Stefano 1997
Editorial Reviews for Bruno Giacosa Nebbiolo Barbaresco Santo Stefano
The nose here starts out really tight with gentle scents slowly crepping from the glass. In the mouth it wraps the tongue in a taut drumskin of clean and precise fruit. Cherry pits and leather gain in intensity yet this medium bodied wine remains very cool and reserved with exceptional balance and finesse with a mineral tone offering freshness on the palate and a sweet spearmint note on the finish. This gains sweetness as the tannins round out and while offering alot of pleasure tonight has good upside potential over the next 5-7 years. Very impressive 1997.
